Fire gutted a home in Redding early Tuesday morning.
The blaze broke out at about 4:30 a.m. on Counter Lane off Quartz Hill Road. The house is on Redding's northwest side.
The 2,500 square-foot home was 80% engulfed when firefighters arrived.
The home and two vehicles were destroyed.
Four people inside the home made it out safely, one suffering a minor burn injury.
Neighbors reported hearing explosions during the fire. Firefighters say it may have been a small propane tank exploding, or possibly one of the vehicles, but no explosions came from inside the house.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
